    But, then again, perhaps it is a sham though. I think Obama knows the GOP didn't come to debate in good faith or advance health care reform constructively. It could be that he is just wanting to shine the light on GOP obstruction and opposition to healthcare reform for the country to see with their own eyes.

    And since an OVERWHELMING majority of Americans want health care reform, and Obama KNOWS the GOP don't wanna give it to them, it very well may be politically motivated.

    Very good question.

    It's a win-win for Obama either way. Either the GOP will show their stubborness and piss off the majority of Americans who want health care reform and the democrats benefit from the voting blow-back OR the GOP will roll up their sleeves and get in the mix to help come up with some solutions.

    RIIIIGHHHTTT!!!!

    The Senate Majority Leaders is making plans to "reconcile" this bill to bypass that pesky cloture requirement and it's the GOP that isn't approaching the matter in "good faith".

    Well, since the socailists' goal is to steam roll this process anyway, since theren't nothing American about the Messiah's plan, let alone Constitutional, I say the GOP should simply go fishing on the day the Senate decides to reconcile itself in opposition to the wills of two thirds of the people in the country.

    A success for the Republican from what I've heard. They aren't cowaring before the One nor ignoring the content of his plan.

    Not really that hard to do when the lying, obfuscating Libs come out to fight. Most of the time they just hide behind their kind, caring, fairness rhetoric and then refuse to debate anyone.

    The liberal elite is afraid that their true motives will come to light. Once large numbers of the dumbed down rank and file liberals are allowed to devine the true motives, even they want to become 'independants'.

    Success? What has happened is they are forced to communicate in front of us!
    That broad appeal for the commonality of our deft representative two party mongering of PICK- me , no me. Has turned off most people . I must point out the people who are in debate politics are not the majority. We are partisans most of us are engaged in ," our side politics". Think- alot of the people we know dont care. They want something done that isnt bickering. Its the main reason alot of poeople dont follow politics. They are forced to choose sides.That is exactly the reason most of us are here to cheer on our side.
    AFTER WATCHING THE PRESIDENT FOR THREE HOURS.
    I see that he believes in doing it even if he has to give up some key points. But no one can say he isnt out front LEADING.

    No one's kicking ass here.

    While watching this thing, it felt like a very quiet, very calm neighborhood, and everyone is sitting at their window with binoculars watching the other houses.

    GOP had talking points, Dems had talking points. Every time someone said something, it ended up being a "this is what we should do" statement. No one is actually doing anything.

    Obama and a ton of publicity: the recipe for a huge sham. It's just a photo-op.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
